I Guess Trees Make the Difference

I've left Minnesota for the next few weeks, and as I took off on a Delta (formerly Northwest) jet this morning, we had a beautiful view of downtown Minneapolis.

Its gleaming, 50-story skyscrapers jumped up out of the flat prairie, contrasting with the one- and two-story houses of south Minneapolis, arrayed before us along the evenly spaced streets, interspersed with green treetops and blue lakes reflecting the sky.

I thought it looked pretty good.

Behind me, I heard one man say to another, "Look at that. It looks just like Las Vegas, only with trees."
